RODNEY BLOCK & THE REAL MUSIC LOVERS WITH 607
9 p.m. Twelve Modern Lounge. $10-$15.

This should be really good: one of the top jazz acts in Arkansas performing with one of the state's premiere MCs. It's been billed as "Jazz vs. Hip-Hop IV" and promises solo performances as well as collaboration. Rodney Block and Co. (Sam Carroll on keys, Michael Chandler on drums and Oliver "OT" Thomas on bass) play all the time, so you know they're sharp.

The latest 607 album, "Yik3s!," got quite a bit of play around the Times offices, as did his absolutely raging remix of Azealia Banks' ubiquitous earworm "212." Promoter N'ell Jones expects to have several birthday celebrations going on, so expect good times and a celebratory vibe all around.
